I am reluctant to tell of this experience as I was extremely frightened and nearly had an accident driving away from this object followed me. But, the question that I am curious to have answered is: Has anyone witnessed an object that makes no sound, is about a large as a hot air balloon's balloon - and round, and had a colour in almost exactly the same colour as the orange coloured street lights? It had an aura about it but didn't cast any light on the ground! Is this one of your usual type of sightings - it followed me at a distance and when I rounded the road and went up and over a hill it slowly came over the rise and down into the valley. There were no reports of any aircraft in the area that night and it has bothered me for many years now. Bearing in mind Kaikoura does seem to be a place of sightings I have never bothered nor believed in them so this wasn't a mitigating factor of my imagination.
